The Instant Millionaire

Do the very wealthy think differently than the rest of us?

The Instant Millionaire by Mark Fisher is a fable which has been re-released in this new second edition by the New World Library.  The book describes an amateur / mentor confrontation over a few days and conveys the lessons that the mentor teaches in an interesting way.  The old wise millionaire mentor attempts to teach the young ambitious, yet naive amateur how to get into the mindset of a millionaire in training. 

If you are looking for strategy on getting rich including specifics on wealth building, this book is not for you.  This is one of those books that you will be tempted to read multiple times and I must admit that I plan to read it again.  It is an easy read at about 120 pages, however the book will leave you thinking for days after you turn the last page.  Several of the principles, habits and, life approaches that the mentor describes are thought provoking and had me wondering how I could adapt them in whole or in part in my own life.  The book is nothing if not inspiring but yet it remains so abstract that it will leave most readers wanting more like a good movie with a short ending.

Overall I recommend this fable and it makes me want to read others like it including The Richest Man in Babylon and Think And Grow Rich.
